The series was an out-of-the-gate smash, scoring 4.02 million total viewers and a 1.3 demo rating —  the network’s most watched episode of anything in three years and its highest rated drama bow since Nikita in 2010.

Even more impressive, the show maintained its premiere demo rating in Week 2 and only dipped by 15 percent in total viewers (to 3.5 million).

Meanwhile, The CW has ordered three additional scripts of both Beauty and the Beast and Emily Owens, M.D.
